Big boys don’t cry is an interdisciplinary dance theatre performance that questions the traditional image of masculinity in a sarcastic and theatrical way. It explores questions such as “What does it mean to be a man?” and “What are the effects of education, emancipation and equality on masculinity?” through the interplay between dance, circus and live-music. Six men of different nationalities examine behaviour, expectations and traditions. Inspired by stereotypical movement patterns, the social roles of men are tested and represented within a variety of dynamics. The performers provoke and challenge the audience by abruptly switching between movement qualities, characters and emotions. Impressive movement material and recognisable mood swings arouse the audience’s attention. Blind trust, intense physical exertion and perfect collaboration between the actors dominate Marion’s choreographies. The contrast between non-verbal and verbal body language catapults her pieces into a new, rarely explored dimension of contemporary art.
